WARRENTON - The wife of a Warrenton Police sergeant was arrested for fourth-degree domestic violence after she reportedly hit her husband with a golf club.
Warrenton Police officers made the initial arrest of Mickie O. Ellerbroek, 47, after they were contacted by a 9-1-1 call made from Ellerbroek's home in the 500 block of North Main Avenue in Warrenton.
The Clatsop County Sheriff's Department then took over the case for Warrenton because one of its officers, Sgt. Bert Ellerbroek, was the victim. Sheriff's Det. Kirsten Hanthorn said the Ellerbroeks are going through a divorce and Bart Ellerbroek had gone to his wife's home to collect some of his belongings.
While he was there, the couple reportedly got into an argument and Mickie Ellerbroek struck her husband with a golf club. Hanthorn said Bart Ellerbroek received minor injuries but did not require medical treatment.
Hanthorn said the couple's daughter in-law made the 9-1-1 call. Both parties in the incident have been interviewed by Hanthorn and she said she will now submit a report to Clatsop County District Attorney Josh Marquis.
Hanthorn said it will be Marquis' decision to prosecute the case or have another district attorney's office do so because of the nature of the case.
